Reality Check Celebrating One Year Anniversary
Micheal Kline “Reality Check” Audio player below!
On this episode of Reality Check we are celebrating. Can you believe that Reality Check has been on the air for a year now? It’s true and we are celebrating with your topics. A few weeks ago I asked for input and ideas from you all for my anniversary show. I got a TON of ideas and will cover several of them on the show. This week’s show is about answering what motivated me to start the show, where do I see myself in a year, what events dos Reality Check look for to bug out, and any other questions that are posted in the chat room. I’ll talk about how the show got started, what motivated me to do it, where the name came from and the fact that we wanted to cover topics that make people think about hard subjects.

6 Gifted Preppers Sitting at The Round Table and the Subject?
In seeking to be a little more self-reliant and independent we strive to learn all we can. We find ourselves, spending countless hours searching endless resources because no one person has the answer to all our questions. There are those self-proclaimed experts that believe they know it all but our security will usually rest in the information we receive from the people we know that specialize.

Planning for Evacuation!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian” Your home is your castle and I’m sure, like me, you don’t plan to leave it all behind unless you absolutely have to. Sometimes though, bugging out is the only option, and the decision to do so may be made for you either by evacuation orders or the nature of a disaster.
Simply put, no one can say that they will never bug out, and there are some important preparations you need to have in place before that need arises. Sure, everyone should have a bug out kit ready to go, but proper planning isn’t as simple as it sounds. There are many factors to consider such as where will you go, how will you get there, and how to make sure the rest of your family also meets up with you along the way.
The answers to these questions depend on many factors and there is no one size fits all solution. Bug out plans depend on many factors and need to be adaptable on the fly. This week on The Prepared Canadian I’ll discuss how to plan for almost any scenario with multiple choices that you must have in place before you are forced from your home.
Among the topics will be planning multiple destinations, mapping out routes and alternatives, having many ways to communicate with other members of your family if you are not all together, as well as some advice for bug out bag contents that will not only help you get where you’re going, but also help restore some sense of normalcy when the dust settles and your normal lives begin to come back into play.

Are you kidding me? Really, you can do that with that? Yep true story! This Sunday on the Other Side of a Preppers Path we’ve got the answers from how to store cleaning supplies, to uses for garlic, coffee, vinegar and more. We are even gonna talk about how to squeeze more out of what you’ve got, along with common sense solutions to those annoying things like untying that knot in the plastic bag, opening a blister pack and closet organizing. Then we are gonna go green with nontoxic kitchen cleaners you already have. It’s a prepper’s smorgasbord. Be sure to tune in because there is sure to be something you had never thought of before.
For this week’s show on Preparing to Provide, I am going to have somewhat of an open format. Unlike shows in the past where I have had guests or a designated topic, I am going to cover a broad range of questions that I receive in response to my YouTube videos. They may be related to gardening, hydroponics, or life in general. Many times, the answers are too complicated for a 2 or 3 sentence response. Some of the questions for this week: Am I concerned about the commercial fertilizers that I use in regard to how they affect me or the environment? How do I feel about the amount of plastics that I use in my hydroponics setups? How did I build my greenhouse? What is the best advice I’ve ever received? Where do I get square buckets?
But I don’t want this show to be solely about me. This is an hour in my schedule that I have set aside to make myself available to anyone who would like to talk to me, regardless of what the topic is. So feel free to call in with your questions, comments, or suggestions at 347-202-0228, and be sure to press 1. I’d like to hear what you’re up to.

On the Homestead Honey Hour TheMrsVolfie takes the helm in this episode of learning and sharing from mistakes as well as triumphs!
I have heard it said that there is livestock and there is dead stock, when we start homesteading and prepping we don’t have all the answers so we rely on the internet. We rely on what people tell us, farmers, breeders, and old timers who have been around the block and then some! But Guess what? These people are just human and they make mistakes, or maybe, they have never faced a situation you could face. Or, maybe they are selling you a line to make a buck. Whatever the case may be folks, putting people on pedestals can be dangerous. Many of us have blogs and YouTube channels, and we share our experience, our strengths and our hopes but that does NOT make us experts. All we can do is share what we learn, when we learn it, when we make a mistake admit it, and share what we learn from the experience.
If we OWN our mistakes…we can learn from them…and hopefully not make them again…Sharing our experiences with failure…is JUST as important as sharing our triumphs.
Join us this week for a very special edition of GoatHollow and the Surreal News!!! We have a guest this week that you won’t want to miss! Her name is Brooklyn Bagwell, and she’s the casting director for Nat Geo’s Doomsday Preppers show!!! Get the answers to the questions you may have. What is their reason, how, and why do those that call themselves Preppers get selected for the show. If you ever wanted to ask a question about the show, now’s your chance!
Over the past month on “Preparing to Provide” we’ve discussed the different “types” of seeds…. Open Pollinated, Heirloom, and Hybrid. Now it’s time to find those specific “varieties” that will do well in your area. From Florida to Ontario, from Texas to Oregon…. growing conditions vary greatly from one location to another. So it makes sense that what grows well in one area would not necessarily grow so well somewhere else. If you want to grow onions, do you need a “long day” or “short day” variety? If you’re growing tomatoes, which is more suitable… a long producing indeterminate, or an early producing determinate variety? If you’re farther north and have a short growing season, what can you do to increase your chances of success if you decide to grow heat loving plants like watermelon and okra? Another factor to consider is the specific growing method. Whether you’re planting in long rows, growing in raised beds, or maintaining a container garden on your patio, there are some varieties that will do well in each situation. Tune in to get answers to the above questions, as well as many more. And feel free to call in and share your own personal experiences. The goal here is to provide as much information as possible to help each other to have more productive gardens.
A round table discussion with questions, answers, and predictions of the election outcome and the impact that it will have on Preppers and Zombies alike! This will be an open forum invitation for the hosts of this network as well as any and all listeners that would like to participate.
